discourse. so i would beg everyone, please, let's try to have a civil discurioudi discour discourse. when you feel because you're anonymous on the keyboard you want to take the guy out you don't agree with, try to have these angels' faces in their mind because you're not helping them and you're not helping all the children in the united states. it's what i heard at the vigil and from what i heard from president obama and what i heard at the services today. everyone wants this. now we have to execute on it. >> tell us about this ribbon. >> this ribbon comes from our local grocery store. they're making them in the floral department and handing them out to anyone who wants it. the colors represent sandy hook school. these were our school colors -- are our school colors. >> i've seen other little ribbons that are similar that have a little angel. >> i know, i want one of those. >> the community, you know, you walk around, you just see these little memorials that are springing up and you see these notes from other little kids, writing messages, writing notes. some the -- two the boys were buri
a good point. >> it begs the question i want to you answer, what are they all doing here? if nobody is interested in getting this deal? >> as dana pointed out, lots of house republicans would rather vote on something after the 1st than before. i haven't seen any indication from obama or the people around him that they are okay with going over the cliff. they really do seem to want to do something before the deadline. they seem desperate to do that. plenty of liberals say, go over the cliff. big cuts in the pentagon and big tax hikes. the white house, from all indications that i've seen, they don't want that to happen. they are scared of what could happen to the markets. >> why aren't they dalg dealing with boehner? dana, be go ahead. jumpb in here. >> i think they won their negotiating power once boehner last week failed. as dana pushed out, the only thing that can get boehner is to do something. >> reporter: i think that you're right when i said that democrats don't think that the president will have much political damage. that does seem to be coming more from democrats here in con
on the street." here's what's happening so far. >> i'm begging members of congress and the executive to please get something done here that reassures consumers, reassures business operators, most important of all to create the jobs in america. >> there are going to be some revenues involved but there need to be multiples of that in entitlement cuts. so i've taken enough flack on both the right and the left of this equation to know that i'm in the right place. >> every company on retail is saying, look at us. behind the scenes, guys, tell me. how is it going? they all say, what, are you kidding me? we got two weeks here. we don't know. i mean, they got a gift cliff. right? the buy cliff. >> right. >> there are other cliffs out there. >> we're back at the opening bell here. >> the real question now is does it affect the consumers? we have not seen consumers go backwards although you saw some confidence numbers come down. i think if we get this solved soon the consumers who have been pretty steady will continue to be there. >> if there is a sense of movement or excessive sense of fear, you can se
. i am begging somebody in washington, step up. be accountable. take responsibility. solve the root cause of these issues. get smart about your weight. >>> the graphic says it, market flash. welcome back to the program. let's look at best buy. the stock's not moving higher, but there are positive comments out there. rare positive comments from an analyst about the store upgrades. bby has been remodeling a number of stores. david chick says they are a real improvement from the old stores. he visited a bunch post, pre, and post remodel. he thinks these are pretty good. he believes they can help with the magnolia sales. their higher end store within a store. making positive comments about these remodels. still, not really helping the stock today. bby shares are down 33% just this quarter. seems like a buyout may be the only big-time hope for bby in the near term. >> brian, thank you for that. currency wars are back. japan's new prime minister is warning the bank of japan had must match efforts by both the u.s. fed and ecb to weaken their own respective currencies. a cnbc contributor an
there trying to beg and plead with the prison and nothing was working until they got the attention of congress and frankly fox news then there started to be movement. let's listen to the congresswoman. >> the parents tried to do it the old fashioned way. john has been rotting in jail since august. the parents did the right thing. they wanted to go through different channels. they hired lawyer after lawyer after lawyer. they had prayer services going here in our community. they didn't contact us until just a few weeks ago. as soon as they contacted us constituent service is what i live for. we pounced on this story and thanks to you guys at fox, you were able to save his life. and who knew how this story was going to end up. the parents knew that they were taking a risk but so far their easy manner was not getting them results. so they said we have got nothing to lose. those first days of media attention from fox were really rough for john. because the guards would rap on his cell and say hey gringo, what are you doing? why is the press calling? update this morning he is out now, of course. the
a project that's authorized, that has gone to the corps for study -- i beg your pardon? the presiding officer: the senator's time has expired. mrs. feinstein: may i ask for two minutes additional time, please. the presiding officer: is there objection? without objection. mrs. feinstein: thank you very much. would essentially take a corps project that has been authorized and the study is being done. once the study is concluded, t the -- and it is cost-effective, the corps proceeds to construction. with respect to mitigation, what this amendment does is, as i understand it, is remove that authorization. now, i could understand how the language before was overly bro broad. what senator boxer and i did in an earlier amendment was narrow that language and we've addressed the shortcoming of the provision by striking it with an earlier amendment. that's amendment number 3421 and replacing it with new text. so this new text no longer authorizes an undefined set of projects. rather, it directs funding to be utilized to construct projects in areas that suffered direct inundation impacts from hu
